Customer reviews for Columbia Women's Sunvent™ Ballet PFG

Columbia Women's Sunvent™ Ballet PFG

Pop trim details infuse this version of the Sunvent Ballet with an extra hit of personality and, like the other shoes in the Sunvent line, this playful warm-weather staple has a convenient removable footbed and cushioning, responsive Techlite midsole that features 3 lateral and 3 medial ports to drain water and facilitate airflow. The rubber outsole has a water-specific design that provides great traction in wet environments. Canvas on the upper enhances breathability while leather toe and heel details lend durability.

I read the reviews so I ordered a half size up and the they fit great. They did dig into my heel at the top but I added a gel arch support which raised my heel and then also added heel cushions. Problem solved. These are really comfy now and I've worn them all day with no problem several times. There is a lot of room in the toe box which is really nice. I get lots of compliments on them.
I would recommend this product.

Opened the box and first impression was how cute they were. I have been looking for awhile for an everyday shoe for casual wear.
Then I tried them on and I was sad.
the heel comes up high and I can tell if I wear them awhile they will rub a blister.
Also, the edge of the top of the foot is cutting into my foot.
I would not have bought these if they were half off, certainly not worth $70 which is the original price.
However, the sole is so comfortable and they are so cute that I can't bear to return them. I am hoping they will loosen with wear or I will be able to put some moleskin on the tight parts.
I would recommend this product.

Great shoe for the SALE price, I would have never bought this shoe at regular cost. Its going to be my go to slip on this summer. My only concern is the back heel rubs a bit. Im worried once they are wet it will create a blister. The fit is true to size, very comfy overall.
I would recommend this product.

I really liked the look of these shoes but I have to return them. It's hit or miss for me finding shoes that fit in an 11. My toes were hitting the end of the shoe. Also the back of the heel is so high up that without socks it will give me blisters.

A great Casual Friday shoe for work, although I also wear it any time I don't have management meetings. Fits well, comfy, removable inner sole, good colors.
I would recommend this product.

Love the adorable pattern around the top of the shoe. They are so cute and functional, I'm not sure I'll be wearing them while fishing!
I would recommend this product.
